Good deal and good sounds. Much better than the Onkyo i replaced it with.

Summary: Sounds awesome. Had a couple problems setting it up 1. RCA cable monitor out to the TV in to be able to see set up menu on screen. 2. Auto microphone set-up sounded like crap, did it manually, that did the trick. The results compared to my Onkyo i replaced it with is Louder, Clearer and Crisper sound all across the spectrum. Very pleased indeed!
Summary: I purchased this receiver approximately five months ago. Since that time, it has been nothing but problems. It makes a hissing noise through the speakers, which the user manual and internet forums indicate is from magnetic interference from the tv or other electronics, but moving it further away from other devices doesn't solve the problem. I never had the hissing/interference with other receivers I've had. It also overheats frequently and turns itself off.
Summary: I needed a 5.1 receiver that wouldn't break the bank, had multiple HDMI inputs (4 was plenty) and could send a 3D picture through HDMI (PS3 3D games and Blurays on my 55" Vizio is AWESOME!!)...and this receiver did the trick. I have had no quality issues with it, and so far it's doing everything I need. I'm just using it in my living room, not my main movie/music listening room, so I cannot speak to how it performs when you really turn up the volume/subwoofer.
Summary: This is probably a fine entry-level receiver for most folks. I'm giving it 3 stars because it has some key features that are not all they may seem to be once you read the fine print in the owner's manual. For example, as another reviewer has pointed out the on screen display doesn't work over HDMI but requires an analog connection to your TV.
Summary: Use it for home 5.1 theater system. Five speakers in ceiling that were there when moved in. Added a Klipsch sub-woofer to the subwoofer pre - out. System sounds great and you can feel the bass. You cannot beat this system for the price. Check the THM distortion levels at realistic levels (This one is < 0.08) Don't fall for a receiver with high watt levels that have 1% or worse distortion at your listen levels - turn em up halfway and you'll think something's wrong with...
Summary: I recently purchased this Pioneer receiver and couldn't be more disappointed. Initially I was impressed by the product but after only two weeks of use the receiver broke during the auto setup feature. It keeps showing an overload error, and even after unplugging all of the speakers the receiver will not turn on. I researched possible fixes and went through the reset procedure with no luck.
Summary: I wanted an A/V switcher/amp that had multiple HDMI inputs, one or more HDMI outputs, an iPod interface and separate A/B speaker circuits. I really only needed stereo output, but good luck trying to find a stereo amp these days, everything is 5.1 or 7.1. This unit performs fine and sounds fine, had all the features I wanted EXCEPT there is only a single "A" speaker circuit, no separate "B" circuit.
